While helping the IB Historical Society with their Project to Preserve and Present IB History for the City's 60th Anniversary Celebration Chris Padilla finds Photo from 1957/58 IB Little League and Program from 1981.

The City is having a Booth at the Mayor's Breakfast and Sun and Sea Festival which will contain the presentation of Imperial Beach's History since it's before and since it held it's Incorporation on July 18th, 1956. The newly formed IB Historical Society lead by City Council Woman Lorie Bragg with the help of some very hard working citizens has been working on this project since late February to try to uncover lost and missing history along with what has been collected by others to put on this presentation.

Besides the Photo above, Here is a sample of the information Chris Padilla provided the Historical Society and was able to find:

The Picture was Taken from 1957 to 1958 on the Major Field that was located where Sports park is now today. My Grand Father Antony Padilla was the manager of the team and also was a board member. My Dad and Uncle were also on the Team, Tony Padilla, Charlie Padilla. 

By going thru these pictures my Family has been with imperial beach little league for three generation.
